Even if there is still a long way for the announcement of the next title, it is now certain that Guerrilla Games is indeed working on Horizon: Zero Dawn 2. According to a job listing, the development studio is currently looking for a senior game writer for an open-world title that could be the next sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn.
As you may recall, more than ten million copies of Horizon Zero Dawn were sold on PlayStation 4 and the adventure of Aloy, the protagonist in this title, became one of the most successful games for the slowly fading away PS4 console. Additionally, many job advertisements have been announced in recent weeks that is also fueling speculation around a possible Horizon Zero Dawn 2 title.
According to reports, today a new job listing from the studio of Guerrilla Games was found and in it, the company is searching for a senior game writer for an open-world title. You can check the job listing below that was quickly deleted but some users on Reddit were able to take a screenshot of it:
“We’re looking for a Senior AI Programmer, who can make a difference in the design and implementation of the systems that make our NPCs come to life! #guerilla #ai #aiprogramming #playstation #ps5 #sony #amsterdam @iamsterdam #gameprogramming #programming”
The other details of the job advertisement include narrative designs for quests, gameplay activities, and game features that refer to Horizon: Zero Dawn 2, and also it seems to confirm that the action role-playing game is said to be one of the first major exclusive titles on the PS5.
We would, however, encourage you to wait for any official announcements from Sony Interactive Entertainment or Guerrilla Games. We will inform you with details if anything is confirmed on this matter.
